Ligety, 29, hasn’t ever won a medal in this event at the Olympics, but this is considered his biggest strength. In fact, he might just be the favorite.

Miller, 36, is already Alpine skiing history’s oldest medalist and has the U.S. record with six overall. He won silver back in 2002, so while this event isn’t his best, he shouldn’t be disregarded altogether.

They’ll have plenty of competition, with Austria’s Marcel Hirscher potentially providing the biggest challenge.
